Around the League...

  • Sean Kazmar Jr. is baseball’s best story of the weekend. Kazmar Jr. is an infielder who last played in the big leagues on September 23, 2008. On Saturday at Wrigley Field, 1,106 minor league games (including 127 with the 2011 Tacoma Rainiers!) removed from his last MLB appearance, he made his return. The last person to go that long between MLB appearances was named Ralph, which should give you an idea of how long ago that was.
  • The only starter from Kazmar Jr.’s last big league game that’s still in the league? You guessed it, Wade LeBlanc.
  • And he’s relatable!
  • Bad news for the Brewers and fans of the game everywhere.

Matthew’s Picks...

  • Amanda Mull wrote an article at The Atlantic that aptly named something I’m sure a lot of us are feeling right now: pandemic senioritis.
  • I spent the 9th-16th camping up and down the coast on a road trip with some friends. These were some of my favorite pictures I took along the way.
